David Gutman, MD, PhD is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Gutman joined the faculty at Emory in 2009. As a research scientist in the Center for Comprehensive Informatics (CCI), he is gaining expertise in whole slide digital imaging.

Dr. Gutman is a member of the Cancer Cell Biology Research Porgram at Winship Cancer Institute.


Dr. Gutman received his PhD in Neuroscience in 2005 and MD from Emory University in 2005. He completed his residency in Psychiatry at Emory University in 2009.


Broadly, Dr. Gutman is interested in using digital imaging technologies to answer important questions in neurosciences.  Specifically, his work focuses on mining digital pathology and radiology imaging from glioma patients and correlating imaging based features with genetic and clinical variables. In addition, he maintains a strong interest in using DTI and MRI based techniques to understand neural circuitry.



In 2015, Dr. Gutman and his colleague, Lee Cooper, PhD, received a $3.5 million Informatics Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) U24 award from the National Cancer Institute, a five-year award to develop software tools to help researchers gain new insights from cancer imaging data. Learn more.
